For nearly 250 years, the Jewish community has made important contributions to life in Canada. In a new, multi-panel exhibition, this legacy is explored through themes ranging from public service and human rights to sports and the arts. The exhibition is supported by an extensive website, which includes an online quiz.
This exhibition was developed by the Canadian Jewish Experience.
